Holiday Cards and Gifts Blog Hop!!

Happy Saturday everyone and welcome to the Holiday Cards and Gifts Blog Hop.  This is my first time part taking in a hop and I'm so excited you've hopped over to my blog.  If you just came from Mandy at Polka Dot Spot, then you are on the right track.  To start from the beginning, hop to Jamie at Glitter, Stamps, and Paper, Oh My.

Christmas has to be my favorite holiday.  It's such a great time of year for so many reason.  I'm so happy to show everyone what I've created for the hop.


I had made a similar card a few days ago and showed my mom.  She liked it so much she wanted a pink one and then she wanted the same card in different colors.  Turns out that I will be making more so my mom can give them to her co workers along with the presents that I'm making.
Materials Used:
Winter Frolic Cricut Cartridge
Pattern Paper-K & Company Wintertide
Other Paper-Recollections Paper Pack
Silver Stickles
Martha Stewart Crystal Fine Glitter
Silver Color Box Classic Pigment Cat's Eyes
Sentiment came from Scrappy Mom's Winter Wishes Stamp Set....Scrappy Moms


So I guess my mom was my influence for this hop.  I don't think she shops anymore...she comes to me to create when it's time for birthdays, anniversaries, etc....My mom loves my rosette flowers that I make so naturally I had to make a card that had one.
Materials Used:
K & Company Winteride pattern paper
Lime Green Paper came from DCWV Street Lace Coordinating Paper Pack
Ribbon came from Michaels
Cranberry Color Box Classic Pigment Cat's Eyes
Sentiment came from Inkadinkado Warm Holiday Wishes


My mom wanted something different to give to her co workers.  I had come across this website called Ornament Designs and I had my inspiration right away.


I wanted to share that the petal box came from cutting it out on my Sure Cuts A Lot but it came from My Scrap Chick.  The K & Company Wintertide pattern paper was used along with cardstock I ran through the shredder.

I hope you enjoyed my creations and now on to the blog candy......
My camera acted up as soon as I got the pictures out for this hop (thank goodness) so one lucky winner will win Tattered Angels Jack Frost glimmer mist and the Imaginisce I Rock Crystal Heat Setting Applicator along with some accessories for it.

To win, all you have to do is leave a message.  I will use Random.org on Monday and pick the lucky winner.  Become a follower if you'd like but only if you want to.

I've enjoyed my first blog hop and thank everyone for stopping by.  I also want to thank Jamie at Glitter, Stamps, and Paper, Oh My for allowing me to part take in this fun and amazing hop.   Now it's time to hop over to Crazy About Cricut.
